Native to parts of China, this is a rare medium sized to large shrub once established with really quite large dark green oval leaves and clusters of white flowers in early summer followed by speckled purple-brown fruit in autumn. The younger stems are a handsome reddish-brown in colour.

Best fruit display once established if planted in a sunny position, ideally with some shelter from strong winds.

  • Important Please Read - Sorbus (Rowan / Mountain Ash) species and cultivars are not and cannot be affected by the Ash disease, Chalara fraxinea.  Despite the potentially confusing name, mountain ashes are actually in the rose family, Rosacaea, and are closely related to apples and pears etc. Fraxinus excelsior (Common ash), are in the olive family, Oleaceae and the wind born disease recently found in the UK is completely specific to this genus.
